X-Men Days of Future Past

Does it come in black? Have any nerdy fans been dreaming about one day seeing the Sentinels in an X-Men movie? Because it's finally happening. Director Bryan Singer and his incredible cast are currently shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past, the storyline involving Bolivar Trask, the Sentinel Program and some time travel. While we've been teasing bits of viral imagery showing the Sentinels, including an unveiling of a head at Comic-Con, Singer has tweeted a set photo of himself standing next to a full-size Sentinel that looks to be over 20 feet tall. It's yet another cool photo giving us more to whet our appetites for Days of Future Past.

"Here's to the next 50 years," Bryan Singer tweeted along with this new photo of him standing by a sentinel:

Days of Future Past

giant exposed weak chest cavity... who designed this garbage? Seriously this design is hot garbage. if you took this to the Pentagon and said "we want to put this on the battlefield" they'd laugh in your face.

Could not agree more!!! This Sentinel is hardly worthy of the name, does not look like it invokes fear at all. This not to mention that the thought of the X Men fighting these things is just not believable at all. Redo them before it is too late. They should be meaner, more beefy and taller.

Unless they have energy shields...

The glimpse of the one in Last Stand was better, a'head of its time....

Ugly I hate it.

N. on Aug 1, 2013


I will wait till they splash their CG on it and then see if its still ugly.

mooreworthy on Aug 1, 2013


oh you mean like The Silver Samurai... oh that was awesome... oh wait... no it wasn't... it was horribly fake looking and awful

Kento on Aug 1, 2013


Too true. They fooled me with that one and left me very disappointed. If the sentinel in the picture is the final product, then it is underwhelming. They need to step it up and make me "whelmed."

mooreworthy on Aug 1, 2013


Honestly, I've never been a fan of the X-men series... they just don't have the right feel to them, so I'm not really looking forward to this one either. Not until Marvel gets the rights back or they reboot the franchise with a new director and vision. First Class was probably the best one out of them.

nate on Aug 1, 2013


I still think it's good to have other companies making some of the movies, as all marvel ones feel so similar, i need some diversity....I like Raimi's spiderman much more for example, X-men 2 and First Class are exceptional movies imho...From Marvel movies, I can say the same thing only about the Avengers!

Mach 1, non-future version?

Matt S. on Aug 1, 2013


Looks like the same damn robot from Real Steel....but with a little purple on it. I understand Bryan is trying to capture the idea of the Sentinel's being made entirely out of plastic so they cannot be susceptible to Magneto's powers; however, this Sentinel just looks dumb and unimaginative. Jesus........i personally do NOT like Bryan Singer coming back to do another X-Men either. Its been a horrible X-Men series until Matthew Vaughn rebooted. The guy just doesnt have the vision for it.

Such heroic nonsense on Aug 1, 2013


X-Men and X2 are widely regarded as some of the best movies in the genre thanks to Bryan Singer so I must disagree with you saying he doesn't have the vision for it. Yet again I wonder how it is possible to judge a film before it is even released?

Mike on Aug 2, 2013


Best movies in the genre?!?! PFFFFT! They were absolutely terrible. The idea was there but the story and characters brought to life were just terrible. You're probably the only one who thinks this way.

Such heroic nonsense on Aug 2, 2013


Yup, just me.

Mike on Aug 2, 2013


Uh, before this recent onslaught of comic book movies from Marvel (+ Nolan's Batfilms), X1 and X2 were definitely considered the best the genre had to offer - right alongside Raimi's Spider-Man. I should know, I was well entrenched in the fandom back then. It's only recently become hip to bash Singer and the X-movies. I imagine it's leftover resentment from Superman Returns. Regardless, you can't retcon the popularity of the X-Men film franchise - it was huge before The Last Stand took the wind out of its sails. I'm hoping Days of Future Past is a return to form.

Ali Miller on Aug 2, 2013


I SO agree with you. Before X1 and 2, no one took comic books movies seriously. Those two were a huge improvement, were made more realistic, and all thanks to the vision of Singer.

Armando Ortega Cisneros on Aug 5, 2013


This thing looks just like my vacuum cleaner.

Mannyfaces on Aug 1, 2013


DYSON, The new way to clean out mutants. Compared to the original designs this looks aweful, however I will say I am happy they are giant rather then human size. That was a huge fear of mine. Not impressed Marvel.

blkstar on Aug 1, 2013


Marvel isn't responsible blame it on Bryan Singer and team.

BinaryChaos on Aug 1, 2013


Why.Am.I.Not.Surprised. *Takes a deep breath* This is a Fox X-Men movie... until they give up the rights, it won't be done right.

Simon on Aug 1, 2013


Meh, I'm not impressed they should have just CGI the sentinel and make it look somewhat like the machines from the comics. I feel I could do major damage to that thing with a SUV alone. Wolverine on the other hand wouldn't have much of a problem taking down machines like that designed with plastic plates. Bryan Singer should have hired the designer of the Silver Samurai machine from The Wolverine movie now that's one intimidating hard to defeat machine with a metal sword that can cut through anything especially Wolverine.

BinaryChaos on Aug 1, 2013


Purple Armor.

DAVIDPD on Aug 1, 2013


Chillax....... we haven't even seen the final product. The x men (1, 2, 1st class) never felt that poppy/comical anyway, like the disney's marvel, so stop comparing! I personally think this would work with the gritty, realistic tone, and the period of time/timeline of the x men movieverse... I mean, here the Sentinels are working for humans, so I guess they have to keep it look technologically believable and friendly, yet still have that somewhat authoritative/sinister insight... Some real life inspirations, anyone?

AptGun on Aug 1, 2013


What no Purple Trash Cans ?? or purplish red as their bodies were rendered .and they seemed taller than 20 ft .This is where he might be thinking with a 2013 mind , instead of like the 80's ones that created this arc . They should all look slightly boxy not sleek , not that advanced ; facially kinda like Dinklage ( thought that 's why he was hired ) Granted that design had a lot of AIM influence , and they haven't introduced them yet ( the new SHIELD series ? ) , but this is basically copying Terminator .....

Dominic on Aug 2, 2013


Where are the captured mutants supposed to be stored? I know people are complaining that it looks plastic, same was said about the Iron man suits. Do you know why? Because it IS plastic. I am sure it will have a more heavy duty appearance after post, I mean really, if they made that out of metal it would weigh more than an average sedan and cost twice as much to build.

matthew south on Aug 2, 2013


The Sentinels look scary in the comics, these look like the cozy manual labour robots I have in my backyard. If they don't look scary, what is the point(jawless weren't they?).

Lars on Aug 2, 2013


Well... I won't bash it any more, but it better have one damn intimidating voice-over.

avconsumer2 on Aug 2, 2013


No. Just no. This is not "Hating" by the way. It's just.........HELL NO. This fucking picture does nothing to remind me of the 90's X-Men cartoons, which is pretty much what every freakin' fanboys and their mothers have in mind when they think X-Men..... Fuck you yet again M. Singer.

TheRagingCajun on Aug 2, 2013


F you, raging. I´m not hating you btw. Come on, dude! Wait a little longer until the movies comes out. After all, Singer made two of the best x men movies: the first two. And got them right, made gritty and realistic as best as he could. At least he is not Ratner (shudder).

Armando Ortega Cisneros on Aug 5, 2013


Take Bryan's balls out of your mouth you pretentious cunt...ALL the XMEN movies are lackluster,blights on REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HumpTrash69 on Aug 9, 2013


It seems like everybody on here Hatin on the Sentinels. I'm not going to start the hate yet. This movie is supposed to take place back in the 70s. I don't expect the Sentinels to look like 2020 futuristic robots. Maybe they will have the classic look we all know when its the future in the movie. I was worried about 1st Class but i was wrong. We should all wait for the HATE until we see some trailers.

PillowPantz on Aug 2, 2013


Agreed!This is or should only be the mark 1 designs anyways.And incase most people forget...the final Sentinals will be made via C-G-I-,PEOPLE!!They will no doubt be HUGE just like the Helicarrier was in AVENGERS.

Sammy Lane on Aug 3, 2013


I'm hoping that's like the prototype then we'll see the final concept later on within the film
